Sunday 9 June 2019   Paulin Ground, Winchmore Hill

WINCHMORE HILL TIGERS 305-7 (J Ranger 133, Greenham 89)

SOUTH LONDON ODD BALLS 277-8 (Marriott 139, Bell 70, M Webster 4-41)

Winchmore Hill Tigers Porto Tour – 2

Match 2

It’s fair to say that two nights and one match in the lovely Porto sun had taken their toll on the touring Tigers as 10 weary bodies made their way out to the field at the uncomfortably early hour of 11am. Continue reading “Winchmore Hill Tigers Porto Tour – 2”

Winchmore Hill Tigers Porto Tour

Match 1

After a quiet day of travelling and an early night with a restful sleep, the Tigers started the first of their annual matches with the Oporto Cricket and Lawn Tennis Club 11 in a fit and ready state… is a sentence that could never be used in the 6 years this tour has been taking place.
